5 Things To Thank Your Mom For
Hanna Hartman

My mom has been one of the most influential people in life. She is my rock and my soul. She is the one who has taught me a lot of life lessons. I trust her with my life (literally) and I know that I can never repay what she has done for me, but I will try. Thanking my mom is one of the best ways to get started. Here are just a few of the things that I am thanking my mom for.

1. Thank you for always having my back.

You have always been behind me when it came to different things. If I had an argument about a grade I got in a class, you would help me fight it. You also taught me to stand my own ground. This is an important lesson that I will remember my entire life. Whenever I needed your help getting out of a sticky situation, you were there.

2. Thank you for helping me make most of the right decisions.

You have guided me in the right direction my whole life. You have raised me to be kind, honest, and loving. I have looked to you whenever I have had to make a big decision in my life and you have given me your opinion and that usually guides me the right way. Honestly, that curfew was probably one of the best "decisions" you have made for me.

3. But, also thank you for letting me make my own mistakes.

You have always told me what you think about different things and you have never lied to me. This is one of the biggest reasons that I love you. You let me know how you felt and then you let me make my own decisions. Most of the times those decisions were wrong, but you let me learn on my own. This was a valuable experience especially when I left the nest.

4. Thank you for believing in me.

You have believed that I could do anything that I set my mind to. You believed in me when no one else did. You were my biggest cheerleader in everything! You were my biggest fan and I can never repay you for all of the games, concerts, and events you went to! Even when they were absolutely dreadful, you were still there cheering me on. You are one of the biggest supporters in my college endeavors and that means the world to me. I know that I will always have you cheering me on.

5. And most of all, thank you for being my mom.

If I ever had a different mom, I would runaway and find you. You are the best mom that I have ever had! I do not know what I would have done without you. Growing up I may not have appreciated the things you did because you were my mom, but I realize how important they are now. You have raised a wonderful young woman and you should be very proud of yourself. Now go have some wine, you deserve it!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
